There's a big differnence, but it'll probably be a pleasant surprise rather than a scary one. How big are you and do you consider yourself a good rider?

My first bike was an 02 426. No worries. They are EASY to ride. You wont be "overpowered". These things are pretty tame. easy to handle - linear power.

Just before I got started, guys would have 300 lb 500 singles as their first dirt bike. Go for it.

It'll definitely be a big differance, but nothing you wont be able to handle.

You will be pleasantly surprised at how easy the four-stroke is to ride. It makes power from the instant you crack the throttle all the way (almost) to its redline. The power is a mad-rush, but a controllable one.
